You know those stories of dog-saving-owner? Check this out.
An Arizona German shepherd named Buddy has called 911 3 times! His owner has seizures, so he was trained to call for help. His owner Joe Stalnaker adopted him at 8 weeks from a Michigan Paws with a Cause, an organization that trains for special-needs owners. The dog is now 18 months old, and can push the programmed buttons until a 911 operator picks up. He then squeaks and makes noises to the operator and they send the ambulance.
I’d like to think so, but I don’t think our Squeaky Chicken would be man enough to do something like this. He’s a good dog and keeps an eye on the kids, but I think when it comes to the phone, he’s rather clueless. Maybe training him will be my new year’s resolution in January…

Thanks! We’re quite attached to our camera 🙂
That’s pretty impressive. I don’t think either one of my dogs are capable of dialing for help. The best I could hope for is that they wouldn’t ransack the garbage while I was incapacitated. 🙁

lol…yeah, mine would probably figure out how to get into the fridge before he’d go to the phone.
Wait a second, you have chickens? Oh wait, that’s your dog. lol There are a few stories floating around just like this now isn’t there? I think we don’t give some animals half the credit they deserve for the brains they carry.
